"Nothing too much trouble and Anne Mackenzie was ch"
We wanted it to be special as we were realising an ambition to visit the castle of Mey. Food and drink great and some of the best chips ever. Wonderful they serve breakfast 7 onwards ideal if you are getting across to Orkney. River house annex luxurious and peaceful
Arrived around 6.30pm after a long drive from Aberdeen and was quickly into my room. Down to the in-house restaurant for an evening meal that was okay if a little pricey. Food was nice and requested Gluten free options which were available. Staff asked if I wanted Gluten free bread for toast in the morning which was a nice change from other hotels!
Room was comfortable although had difficulty in getting a consistent temperature and found the bed either too warm or too cold (strangely enough) so didn't sleep too well. No complaints about the bed itself and the room was clean and spacious with free wi-fi if required. Suspect the temperature issue was probably just me not adjusting the radiator properly.
Breakfast was off to a slow start with there being no staff around to speak to about where to sit and the ordering process. Had to go to the reception to attract someone's attention. Once a member of staff appeared had to point out that there were no bowls for the cereal but they were promptly made available.
Food was good with the cold/cereal choice being ample and the hot offerings also good.
Location-wise the hotel is easily found (just opposite the Tesco store).
Overall a pleasant enough hotel although the staff could be a little more attentive (stood at the restaurant/bar for a good 5 minutes waiting to be served whilst several staff members came and went) and had to specifically "grab" someone to order my evening meal/drink.

We stayed here before an after a tip to the Orkneys. The Hotel is very handy to Thurso and it was no bother to get here with our rental after the ferry to Scrabster. The front desk and restaurant / bar staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The meals were beautiful. The wifi was a bit flakey but a change of rooms fixed that, and there was no lift, but that's probably not unusual. Recommended.
Thurso lies at the tip of the Scottish Highlands and is the most northerly town on the British mainland. Watersport fans can join locals at the reef at Thurso East, Scotland's prime surfing venue and host to many international competitions. Just 2.4 km from the port of Scrabster, visitors can hop on a ferry and explore the rolling landscape and extensive coastline of the beautiful Orkney Islands.
